Study Psychologists and University Chaplain
The Study Psychologists and University Chaplain offer their services to University of the Arts staff and students. Discussions are free of charge and absolutely confidential. You do not need to be in crisis to go in and have a talk. If you just want a chat, that’s fine.
With University Chaplain Minna Kumpukallio you can talk about anything between heaven and earth: joy, longing, sorrow, happiness, everyday life; you decide what the topic of the meeting will be. The university chaplain is available for discussions regarding any personal or professional matter, and students and staff can contact her regardless of their religious background and the chaplaincy is a safe and welcoming space to all faiths and none. You can book appointments via e-mail or phone: tel. 050 345 0646, minna.kumpukallio (at) evl.fi.
